Nights Dream Wheel from SEGA turns out to be a casino slot machine

There was plenty of excitement from SEGA fans back in July 2019 when it emerged that SEGA had trademarked a mysterious new Nights into Dreams title called, Nights Dream Wheel. The original game for the SEGA Saturn is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary at the moment and long-term SEGA fans were certain back then that Nights Dream Wheel would be an original new Nights game to celebrate the series history. It turns out that Nights Dream Wheel is actually a slot machine game at San Manuel Casino in California, which is shame for those who still enjoy the original SEGA Saturn title which was pegged by The Sonic Team to be a Mario 64 killer back in 1996. Nights into Dreams never enjoyed the level of success which SEGA had envisioned, but it still lives on as a classic SEGA game.

Props to My Nintendo News reader RPG Hacker for correctly guessing it was going to be a slot machine game back in July 2019!

  1. Well holy pickle, now that’s one way to geat featured on an article, haha! Totally forgot about making that prediction, but there we go! πŸ˜…

  2. I just want to play the original!

    Nearly 20 years since I first learned this franchise exists. And all we have is the sequel on the Wii, plus an in-game soundtrack from the first game.

    1. I was thinking once I wrote the article that it would be awesome if it was available on Switch. At the moment you can only play it on Xbox One / Series S|X and PC.

      1. Neither of which I own nor feeling buying just for one game.

        My funds are finite.

  3. You know it would be a lot nicer if this series gets another game in the franchise. I mean, I never even notice the original game was a slot machine.

  4. I can remember playing a Nights demo on my old Sega Genesis, it was that bulky ass system that had a Cartridge slot AND a CD reader…. hella big but I loved that thing.

    What’s odd though is all I can remember from the Demo was really flying around as the character in a colorful world with what I feel like were hoops in the sky or something.

    I don’t remember a lot but I remember never being interested in it again lol.
